  • Greetings to the people of Harrison County,
    It seems like it was just yesterday that we arrived, and this is why it’s so hard to believe we have resided in Cynthiana just short of five years. When Sharon, Trinity and I first arrived here in Cynthiana, we got busy with the First United Methodist Church, and in the community which God placed FUMC.
    How excited we were to build relationships with you as we shared the Good News of Jesus Christ.

  • Experiencing the holy
    I love yoga -- pants.
    Soft, comfy, forgiving. They’re great to wear around the house or to bed. They’re especially great to wear before, during and after you stop at the store and bring home a vanilla creme bundt cake and maybe slice into it one or 12 times too many.
    Not that I’ve ever done that, but if I do, I’ve got the perfect pants for it.

  • I think about food so much this time of the year because vegetables abound and broilers and lambs are on pasture.  I have a deep appreciation for homegrown food and this includes making it look pretty when it is served for a meal, especially when we have guests!
    Any successful festivity needs food, friends and flowers; and the food and flowers can actually complement each other because there is a wide range of flowers that are edible.
